“I ate this at a restaurant called INDiGO in St. Thomas, U.S Virgin Islands and it was the BEST burger I'd ever had! Absolutely wonderful! Since I didn't have much time, I used honey roasted peanuts instead of a peanut sauce, canned pineapple instead of fresh and guessed at the rest...kind of made it my own. They turned out so good that I just had to share them with you all. Eat these burgers at your next gathering and your guests will be raving!”
4 Burgers

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb hamburger (try a mix of 1/2lb of burger and 1/2lb of ground sausage...mmmm!)
  • 1 egg
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (Kraft makes a blend like that. It's got monterey jack, cheddar and one or two others in it. Tasty to)
  • salt and pepper, to taste (Any spices that you like, I prefer "Slap Ya Mama" - GREAT cajun spice!
  • 1 (12 ounce) can pineapple slices
  • 1 (16 ounce) packagesliced ham
  • 1 (10 ounce) package cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 1 (16 ounce) can honey roasted peanuts
  • 1 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 4 hamburger buns


  1. Mix first 6 ingredients well in a bowl with your hands, to make sure that it's really all mixed well, and then form into 4 burger patties.
  2. Mush a bunch (10-15) of the peanuts into each patty and then put them on the grill, peanut side down.
  3. When they are almost halfway done (depending on your heat, this could be anywhere from 2-4 minutes), flip'em and add a couple slices of ham, some cheddar and a slice of pineapple to each and let'em finish cooking.
  4. Take'em off the grill and add them, with lettuce and tomato, onto your buns with any mustard/ketchup/condiment you like and enjoy!
  5. Goofy sounding, but darn tasty!
  6. Try'em!
  7. If you really have some time on your hands, you could make a peanut sauce instead of using honey roasted peanuts, but I'm just lazy and the peanuts worked out very well.
